    Default Microsoft pulls the plug on Kin

    From Microsoft pulls the plug on Kin by Ina Fried:

    Amid slow sales, Microsoft has decided to halt work on its Kin phone, focusing instead on its Windows Phone 7 effort, CNET has learned.

    The phone will not ship in Europe, as planned, and the company is shifting the team's workers to focus on Windows Phone 7, the Microsoft smartphone operating system due out later this year. Andy Lees, who heads up the company's cell phone efforts announced the move to Microsoft workers earlier on Wednesday, according to a source close to the company.

    Microsoft confirmed the move in a statement to CNET.

    "We have made the decision to focus exclusively on Windows Phone 7 and we will not ship KIN in Europe this fall as planned," the company said. "Additionally, we are integrating our KIN team with the Windows Phone 7 team, incorporating valuable ideas and technologies from KIN into future Windows Phone releases. We will continue to work with Verizon in the U.S. to sell current KIN phones."
